    The Future of Ash Forests in Minnesota

    Description

    Black ash (Fraxinus nigra) is present throughout the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States and is often found in lowland hardwood forests. Black ash seed is an important food for birds and small mammals, and its twigs and foliage are used by ungulates. Black ash wood is valued for paneling and furniture as well as for Native American basketry. In recent years, the availability of quality trees used to make baskets has diminished because of black ash decline.
